Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies mode, Campaign & Battle Royale
There’s no official news regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s gameplay yet but rumor has it that Battle Royale game mode will make its debut in the series with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Many believe that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature less advanced futuristic war technologies in its gameplay in comparison to what’s in Infinite Warfare (2016) which was heavily “under fire” back then.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies mode
Black Ops 2’s Zombies mode was more successful than its Multiplayer mode and only Zombies mode has been highlighted in the community’s discussions recently though Call of Duty: Black Ops has nothing to do with zombies originally.
According to Polygon, Treyarch is focusing on Zombies mode as well as the Multiplayer aspect rather than the game’s story mode. Earlier this month, E3’s official Twitter mentioned that gameplay of Zombies mode maybe introduced during the upcoming E3 (June 12-14).
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Campaign
Because of the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops has always come with a good storyline, many fans can get really upset if the rumors turn out to be true that there is no single player campaign featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s initial release.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode
Whether if Battle Royale mode will be featured along the base game or not is still unclear but it’s very likely that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have this trending game mode. Activision is interested in this game mode’s recent success and maybe the Battle Royale mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 if there is one will be a test for a stand alone Battle Royale-themed game series from Activision in the near future.
